South Africa registered an innings and 32 runs win over India in the 1st Test match of the series on Thursday at SuperSport Park in Centurion and led the series 1-0. With that loss, India won’t be able to win the ongoing two-match Test series even though they win the remaining Test match at Newlands in Cape Town. With that, Sri Lanka remains the only Asian team to win a Test series in South Africa.
Sri Lanka won the two-match Test series against South Africa in 2019, and Sri Lanka became the first and only Asian team to win a Test series in South Africa. Sri Lanka registered a 1 wicket win in the 1st Test of the series, while Sri Lanka won by 8 wickets in the second Test match of the series.
Only Australia and England have been able to win Test series in South Africa other than Sri Lanka.
